April Rudolph Day


I've used my Card-io stamps for these cards. The second card is the first one I made - I had a smudge at the very last minute so had to add some extra stamps and then to my eye it look crowded. So I added a vellum wrap to hide some of the detail - but by then I had also done a second take of the scene as I had originally intended it, so that is the first card.
For both cards I used an embossing folder background with CE glitter kiss applied over the top. On the first card I used an embossing folder on vellum, cut out the greeting and again used glitter kiss over the top. 
I'm entering these cards in Mo's Rudolph Day challenge and also in the Stamping Sensations challenge which is for "anything goes".

Wonderful scenes, clever to use the vellum to hide some of scenery.

Beautiful cards, I love the scenes you've created and lovely embossed backgrounds. Clever idea to use the vellum sentiment panel to cover up part of one of the scenes.
Thank you for joining in the Rudolph Days Challenge this month - Good Luck!

Two beautiful cards!your inky scene is gorgeous and the vellum wrap for the sentiment was a great solution to the wee smudge! Love the look of the embossed vellum.
